Support » Fixing WordPress » Google blog search stopped indexing me

  • I just realized that Google Blog search stopped indexing my posts as of 12/5.

    I haven’t made any changes to the templates, files, or done any upgrades. Just posts and backups as usual.

    I’ve done a variety of searches under “indexing” and “blog search,” but haven’t found anything concrete as to how to resolve this. Is there an easy (or hard,) fix I can start on?

    My site is

    Many thanks in advance… I appreciate it. James

  • Did they stop indexing you, or have they just not been by your site since 12/5?

    Google can be slow. Don’t expect them to necessarily come by every day. It’s only been a little over a week. They may come back in a day or two.

    But this is more of a google question than a WP question.

    Hi Adam. With Google blog search they generally index it minutes after publishing a post. I believe it’s in WP and other blog designs that immediately send it after publishing.

    Also I just verified my site with Google tools, and it shows a crawl on 12/12. So if I Google a recent post of “future gringo, diabetes” my recent post will show up – however doing the same on Google’s BLOG search (which updates minute by minute) should show this post but it does not.

    Are you using a Google Sitemap? Might help somewhat.

    Hi – I downloaded Google sitemap Friday and activated it. I got an error that it couldn’t write to the two files, so will need to make sure they’re writable.

    BUT – I created a test post just now and it immediately showed up on Google blog search, as do my “missing” posts from the past week.

    Although I have no idea why, (very tech savvy I know,) my posts are being immediately indexed to Google blog search as I originally wanted.

    Thanks for the responses.

    When looking at your site, it looks like you may have the same problem I was having. I posted my fix to the problem to have google index my site within seconds:
